DHS issues new deportation rules after Barack Obama’s immigration Executive Order

Originally posted on America's Watchtower:

 It is only natural that after Barack Obama issued his illegal immigration/amnesty Proclamation that the Department of Homeland Security would have to release new rules concerning illegal immigration and deportation and that is exactly what the agency has done.

  Here is more:

The Department of Homeland Security has just released new “Policies for the Apprehension, Detention, and Removal of Undocumented Immigrants.” Designed to fill in the details after President Obama’s announcement that at least four million currently illegal immigrants will be given work permits, Social Security numbers and protection from deportation, the DHS guidelines are instructions for the nation’s immigration and border security officers as they administer the president’s directive.

  First the good news, if you believe these rules will be enforced that is:

From President Obama, in a video posted Wednesday on Facebook:

What I’m going to be laying out is the things that I can do with my lawful authority as president to make the system better, even as I continue to work with Congress and encourage them to get a bipartisan, comprehensive bill that can solve the entire problem.

The president’s conception of “lawful authority,” as we’ve seen with multiple revisions of the Affordable Care Act, is he can amend duly passed laws any way he sees fit, and can choose to enforce or not enforce laws as he likes. The purported justification for not enforcing current immigration law is “prosecutorial discretion,” a sweeping expansion of the doctrine that the enforcement arm of the government may make decisions about where to use scarce resources. Not that Obama is worried about what will happen when he gets out of office (a…

"You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised" (Heb 10:36-37).

How do you know when God has placed obstacles in your path to protect you or that Satan is hindering God’s purposes in your affairs?

I was in California traveling four hours to a speaking engagement when terrible fires had broken out in Southern California and many of the highways were being shut down. Such was the case about an hour into my journey. I had to detour to a small town and was questioning whether I should turn around and go back. I stopped at a convenience store. A woman pumping gas next to me said the interstate was closed down ahead and if I was going north I would never get there and even if I did get there I’d have difficulty getting back.

Suddenly, fear struck me with the prospects of being stranded in a strange place. I quietly prayed, asking the Lord whether this was a warning for me to turn back or Satan’s hindrance. I went into the convenience store to inquire about a map. While I was standing there a man walked up to me and said, "Where are you trying to go?" I told him my dilemma and he explained that the interstate was open just north of where we were and that he had to go to this exact spot and would be glad to guide me there. He took me through all sorts of side roads in very unfamiliar areas. I would never have gotten there by myself, nor would I have made the attempt.

We came to the interstate ramp just above where the fires were. He waived as he sent me on my way. I had no more trouble. I arrived at the luncheon on time and ministered to the businessmen.

I often look at that situation and wonder if God sent his angel to lead me to where I was to go. Immediately after I had prayed at that convenience store – the man approached me and gave me the answer.

Do you have a situation that is difficult to discern whether God is protecting you or Satan is hindering you? Ask God to show you.
